then running the false commercials about chrysler and general motors while san difs going on. in other words, i'm suggesting it was a misopportunity saying i care more about the american people. and that message would have gotten out. he came off seeming peevish and small instead of somebody we're imagining as president during the crisis. obviously the president has the resources and was going to garner more attention, but i think romney bungled that. >> you heard me asking chip and howard about the split between the electoral and popular vote. how has that played out in the past? >> we all lived through 2000 and how awful it was dangling and having to go to the supreme court. democrats never taking george bush seriously as a real president. it's not pretty, butt game from the start is the electoral college. it's not about popular vote. we can argue that's good or bad. when romney started running and obama started running, they knew the game was to get the math of the electoral college. right now the problem mitt romney is ohio. and i think if he had not written that op-ed piece

. worst week for me of that romney ad. i think if romney loses ohio it's because of that chrysler ad. you see some pent up anger about that. >> a lot of reaction. how about you susan. >> heroes of the week were the first responders because they are still out there. they are working on stuff even as their own homes are under water or on fire. doing an incredible job. for the worst week all those republicans who criticized chris christie for standing with the president of the united states, taking care of business, that's not what it's about and you are a loser if you do that. >> okay. >> there you go. >> we need make you and honorary democrat. keep it up. >> in a moment krcraig melvin joins us from washington. stay with us here at democracy plaza. but i still have a runny nose. [ male announcer ] dayquil doesn't treat that. huh? [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus rushes relief to all your worst cold symptoms, plus it relieves your runny nose. [ sighs ] thank you! [ male announcer ] you're welcome. that's the cold truth!

other hand, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you that the folks who are showing up for these republican events are very energized, they are very enthused about their ticket. and now as a matter of seeing, alex, who's got the better ground game. democrats or republicans. we'll know in ten days. >> we will certainly indeed. thank you so much ron mott. safe travels on the bus tour. >>> next up we turn to nbc's kristin welker who's in new hampshire with the the president. hello to you, kristin. before we get to the president's campaign event there, is hurricane sandy affecting the white house plans at all? >> reporter: absolutely. it is affecting t
